Excerpt from The Isle of Wight: With Illustrations by F. D. Bedford and From Photographs, Two Maps and Three Plans
AN attempt has been made to embody in this little volume some of the more interesting facts about an island of peculiar natural beauty and charm, and not without... historical associations of considerable importance. Much has already been written about the Isle of Wight, and the writer makes no claim any great originality in the information he sents to the reader in the following pages; he has striven to be precise and accurate in facts, and he has endeavoured to present in concise and convenient form. The re of compiling this little work has been enhanced by the very friendly assistance writer has received, and his particular thanks are due to Mr John H. Oglander, for much kind help and the loan of books from library at Nunwell, and to Mr Percy G. Ne, for permission to have drawings from his plans of Carisbrooke Castle and.
